Manager Neil Harris has said that Millwall failed to be ‘ruthless’ enough in front of goal in the scoreless draw with Chesterfield on Tuesday evening.

Hosting the side at The Den with everybody on a high following the FA Cup victory over Leicester City, Millwall dominated every telling statistic on the day other than the scoreline and the gaffer knew it really should’ve seen the return of all three points.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, Harris’ frustration was clear to see and he explained about the draw.

‘We’ve dominated about 95% of the game. The shot count will be telling. Shots on goal, shots on target, shots off target – it could have been a cricket score. Some of our play was excellent. The positions we got in were really, really good for 15 minutes and certainly in the second-half, but we’ve got to be clinical.’

With disappointment at not taking the victory and all three points, the unbeaten run now stretches to 14 matches and it was another clean sheet, so there were also things he could take from it.

‘I’m delighted with another clean sheet. It wasn’t our most dominant one, but we’ve got it anyway to get us the point. But, we should be winning tonight’s game. We’ve got to win games like that. There’s so many aspects of the game tonight that I’m really pleased with. The overriding feeling at the moment, though, is that we didn’t get the three points. We’ve got to find that ruthlessness that gets us over the line.’
